[Memorial Hall IU]
Dear David –
This letter came and was addressed to Mark. When I saw it was from Federal Home Loan Bank Board I thought I had better call Mark. He said for me to open it and immediately I saw it was for you and was from Ira.
I think the Fields moved today. I didn’t even have the car out of the garage so didn’t get away from home, so can’t say for sure.
Uncle Mutch and Aunt Ruth were here today after having been to Clay City for a reunion. Uncle Mutch had been sick while they were visiting. Daddy gave him a shot of penicillin and after they visited a while went on home. We asked them to stay for dinner but Aunt Ruth said she thought they had better get on home.
Mark’s are coming the week-end of the 13-14-15. Mark seemed to think they wouldn’t be coming down many more times before the baby comes.
[page 2] Dad did a lot of work in the yard – mowed and trimmed. He had to cut the Russian Olive (west one) off – it looks like a post – the blight had ruined all the leaves.
I checked your bank balance and it was down to $6.00. I will put $50.00 in for you tomorrow.

Mr. Mark Yegerlehner
Under separate cover I am sending, by parcel post, the Eisenhower pictures which I mentioned.
You might show one of them to Greta and ask her if she would like to have it. Otherwise, you may use them as you see fit.
Haven’t seen President Eisenhower recently, but everyone tells me that he is really enjoying live and campaigning harder and more effectively than he did when he was serving as our President.
Kindest regards to yourself and family.
Member of the Board

Obviously my fame as an Eisenhower fan had spread far and wide. I don’t recall who Greta might have been.
I think some of the Dixon family lived in Kentland.
“he is really enjoying live” should read “life”
